- bool "kmemcheck: trap use of uninitialized memory"
- depends on DEBUG_KERNEL
- depends on !X86_USE_3DNOW
- depends on SLUB || SLAB
- depends on !CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE
- depends on !FUNCTION_TRACER
- default n
- help
- This option enables tracing of dynamically allocated kernel memory
- to see if memory is used before it has been given an initial value.
- Be aware that this requires half of your memory for bookkeeping and
- will insert extra code at *every* read and write to tracked memory
- thus slow down the kernel code (but user code is unaffected).
- The kernel may be started with kmemcheck=0 or kmemcheck=1 to disable
- or enable kmemcheck at boot-time. If the kernel is started with
- kmemcheck=0, the large memory and CPU overhead is not incurred.
- prompt "kmemcheck: default mode at boot"
- depends on KMEMCHECK
- help
- This option controls the default behaviour of kmemcheck when the
- kernel boots and no kmemcheck= parameter is given.
- bool "disabled"
- depends on KMEMCHECK
- bool "enabled"
- depends on KMEMCHECK
- bool "one-shot"
- depends on KMEMCHECK
- help
- In one-shot mode, only the first error detected is reported before
- kmemcheck is disabled.
- int "kmemcheck: error queue size"
- depends on KMEMCHECK
- default 64
- help
- Select the maximum number of errors to store in the queue. Since
- errors can occur virtually anywhere and in any context, we need a
- temporary storage area which is guarantueed not to generate any
- other faults. The queue will be emptied as soon as a tasklet may
- be scheduled. If the queue is full, new error reports will be
- lost.
- int "kmemcheck: shadow copy size (5 => 32 bytes, 6 => 64 bytes)"
- depends on KMEMCHECK
- range 2 8
- default 5
- help
- Select the number of shadow bytes to save along with each entry of
- the queue. These bytes indicate what parts of an allocation are
- initialized, uninitialized, etc. and will be displayed when an
- error is detected to help the debugging of a particular problem.
- bool "kmemcheck: allow partially uninitialized memory"
- depends on KMEMCHECK
- default y
- help
- This option works around certain GCC optimizations that produce
- 32-bit reads from 16-bit variables where the upper 16 bits are
- thrown away afterwards. This may of course also hide some real
- bugs.
- bool "kmemcheck: allow bit-field manipulation"
- depends on KMEMCHECK
- default n
- help
- This option silences warnings that would be generated for bit-field
- accesses where not all the bits are initialized at the same time.
- This may also hide some real bugs.
